Terms and Conditions for educational use
Individual pupils/students/teachers can download and print off resources from the Mission Explore website for educational purposes within the school or other educational establishment in the UK.

"Educational establishments" are defined as schools, colleges of further and higher education, universities and colleges of nursing in the UK.

Multi-copying for sharing of material in classes is covered under Educational Recording Agency (ERA) licence arrangements, provided your school/educational establishment takes out a licence.

If the pupils/students cut, paste and re-order material, it must be within the context of the classroom only. Neither S35 of the Copyright Act, nor the ERA Licence permits any distortions, amendments or mutilations and licensees are required to respect and maintain the integrity of the work copied.

However, extracts or part of a website or compilations of extracts can be made, provided it is for the educational purposes of registered students of the school/educational establishment.

Pupils/students can take copies of material home provided it is for continuation of work started in the classroom, required by a teacher in the course of their normal educational studies.

The schools/educational establishments should not provide copies of material to parents, or other members of the public as it would be impossible for the school to ensure copies were being taken for personal use only. Copies can, however, be provided to teachers on in-service courses.

Schools/educational establishments should keep records of any electronic copies of material in accordance with the ERA Licence principles, this includes labelling all copies with the date and title, together with the statement, "This electronic copy is to be used only under the terms of the ERA be directed to the appropriate staff to respond to the request, and may be recorded to help us update our site to better respond to similar requests.

Copies of material should NOT be used for any promotional, administrative or commercial purposes of the school/educational establishment.

On no account should any copies be offered for sale, sold or hired out. Nor can copies be shown to fee-paying audiences or non-registered students.
